A little about me...

I am a teacher, conductor and performer based in Sydney, Australia. I teach all brass instruments: trumpet, cornet, trombone, bass trombone, euphonium, baritone horn, tenor horn, tuba and sousaphone. I teach from my custom-built home studio in Thornleigh (very close to Normanhurst West Public School, Thornleigh West Public School and Pennant Hills Public School).

*2021 Covid-19 update: Due to social distancing restrictions I am now able to offer full tuition via all online platforms (Zoom, Skype etc). I am fully set up with my home studio to offer all services online as required. Please enquire for details.
